Want to have a positive social impact? Ever had an idea but not known where to start?
If the answer is yes, perhaps you should be thinking about starting your own social enterprise venture…
Unlike a business or corporation, social enterprise ventures are not profit driven; profits are usually reinvested into the organisation or community. The main goal of a social enterprise is to drive positive change; however this does not mean social enterprises are not financially successful. Social enterprises are businesses where society profits! There are many successful social enterprises in the UK and there’s more being brought to market every year.
If you have an interesting idea for a social enterprise and want to be an agent of change, we have the event for you!
On Tuesday 10th May at 2.00pm, we have a member of Manchester Metropolitan University’s Business School coming to the University of Cumbria to deliver a workshop about social entrepreneurship. The workshop will introduce students to social enterprise, motivate and inspire students to start their own ventures and will also act as a great networking platform (remember it’s all about who you know!). The event is two hours long, free to attend and will be held at the Fusehill Street campus in Carlisle.
Don’t worry if you don’t currently have any enterprising ideas, if you are interested in social enterprise you should still pop along to the Social Enterprise workshop. You never know, you may leave the event with an idea that could change your life; or more importantly – the lives of others.
We hope you can make it! Let’s help make the world a better place and drive positive change!
